Dear Bar Owner/Manager,



We’re writing to invite you to participate in the 2006 Golden Pint Awards, sponsored by The Elucidator and Begley’s College Hill Tavern. In addition to the Golden Pint for the Best Bar in the Easton Area, we will be giving certificates of excellence in the categories listed on page 2 of this letter. Participation is simple: just hand out surveys to your customers during the month of March, return the survey forms to Begley’s or the Elucidator offices by April 3, and you’re done. The winners will be announced in the June issue of the Elucidator. This contest will be promoted both in the Elucidator and in radio spots on the Hawk 99.9 FM.


The purpose of the Golden Pint Awards is to promote Easton area bars and to encourage patrons to visit various bars during the month of March. This promotion is offered to you free of charge. All you need to do is hang a sign in your establishment announcing the contest and encourage your cliental to participate by filling out a survey.


To be a part of this promotion, call Jeannie Begley (610-252-9456) or El Warner (610-390-6816) by February 1. Signage and surveys will be dropped off by the end of February. A full-page announcement listing participating bars will run in the March Elucidator, and the contest will be promoted on the Hawk throughout the month.
